Celebrating Evensong

The images within Celebrating Evensong were originally created as a series of prints to take the reader on a visual journey through Choral Evensong.

The images came to be created when my son started as a Chorister with the Rochester Cathedral Choir.

It became a major project during the final year of my Printmaking degree at UCA Maidstone. Originally using a wide variety of printmaking methods: etching, aquatint, lithography, linocut and screen print, I revisited the work later, creating the screenprints in advance of painting the large banners which became my Art for Evensong exhibition, which was created for Rochester Cathedral, and then taken on tour to three more English Cathedrals.

Here they are published as a screen printed, hand-bound book titled “Celebrating Evensong” in an edition of 24.

The book is presented in a box made from handmade paper sourced from Moulin de Larroque.

Celebrating Evensong is priced at £320/€320/$425 including postage and packing.
